Two new renderings have been revealed for 511-515 West 18th Street, in West Chelsea, which is being developed by Related Companies. The images show two towers with pod-like bowed glass facades, and brick exteriors, running along Tenth Avenue, and positioned on either side of the High Line between 18th and 19th streets. Thomas Heatherwick will be the design architect.
Demolition permits have been filed for the home of the Italian American Museum, who operate out of 185, 187, and 189 Grand Street in Little Italy, Manhattan. However, this is not a disappointment for the institution. They had been trying to sell their current location for years, on the condition that they are provided with rent-free space within the replacement. They were finally successful in February 2017, when their buildings were purchased for $14.8 million by Oved Group and Nexus Building Development Group.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 110 West 123rd Street in Harlem, Manhattan. The site is two blocks away from the 125th Street Subway Station on Malcolm X Boulevard, serviced by the 2 and 3 trains. Four blocks further is the Harlem 125th Street Train Station, for Metro-North. Also nearby is the Marcus Garvey Park, a square four-block-wide area with a recreation center and the Richard Rogers amphitheater.
The Downtown Brooklyn residential boom has ranked among the most impressive growth spurts any neighborhood has seen in the history of the Five Boroughs, and now, plans have been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at the periphery of the boom, in Clinton Hill. There, at 550 Clinton Avenue, Morris Adjmi Architects is designing a new 29-story residential tower, which went before the LPC for review yesterday.
When we last checked in on 587 Main Street in New Rochelle, New York, it was barely noticeable on the skyline, rising just six flights up. Now, thanks to photos by Nick Ramacciato, we can see that the structure has made substantial progress. Work is currently up to the 20th floor, out of a total 28. Façade installation has not yet started, though the angled shape of the building is easily visible. Paulus, Sokolowski, and Sartor (PS&S) are responsible for the architecture, and a fresh rendering also gives a better view of what the top floors will soon look like.
